Coriant said that Marseilles-based HOPUS has chosen its Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform for upgrades to the company's high-capacity transport infrastructure. Supporting 100G DWDM transport between the Paris and Amsterdam metro markets,the new fiber network deployment will enable delivery of end-to-end internet exchange and IP services.
HOPUS says it focuses on "providing quality routes to major networks that usually don't connect IXs (internet exchanges)." Coriant asserts that deployment of the Groove G30 will enable HOPUS to meet its domestic and international service provider, content provider, and internet access customers' developingIP traffic needs and dynamic applications.
"With the unabated explosion of high-bandwidth end-user applications, not only is demand for capacity growing, but so is our customers' need for faster response times," commented Philippe Duguet, HOPUS CEO. "In order to address these evolving demands, we needed an optical transport solution that could meet our stringent performance requirements for efficiency, scalability, and resiliency, while offering operational simplicity and flexibility to facilitate fast and easy service deployment. The Coriant Groove G30 proved the ideal solution."
The HOPUS deployment is one of several IX-related contracts Coriant has announced over the past several months. For example, Coriant's Groove is also being used by INEX, the internet peering point for Ireland, and peering service provider France-IX (see "Ireland's INEX uses Coriant Groove G30 for scalable high-speed service" and "Coriant supplies Groove G30 to France-IX for optical transport network upgrades"). Coriant said that Spanish neutral internet exchange ESpanix has also chosen its Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform for a high-speed optical backbone network to connect key data center sites throughout Madrid (see "ESpanix chooses Coriant's Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to connect Madrid data centers").
